Will Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 500 (GMA 500 - Poulsbo) be 
supported in the upcoming 9.04?

This graphics chip is found in more and more laptops and netbooks, but 
is not yet supported in the upstream X.

Some of the laptops/netbooks on the market are even sold with Ubuntu 
8.04 with support for this graphics chip, but after they are upgraded to 
8.10, graphics doesn't work any more.
